how is the ppc-6700 a ripoff of the iphone when it came out nearly 2 years before the iphone?




while yes u are right about the ppc-6700 (i was dumb enough to spend 500 bucks on it), i didnt mean that phone was a ripoff (though i should have stated that), i was implying that it was sprints king at the time. It was a very popular touch screen at the time. Everyone had em. Too bad it never worked right. You would always have to align the stylus. It would freeze and what not. I was just comparing it to the IPhone. The HTC is nice dont get me wrong, but my boss has it and he said and i quote, "dude i love the google phone, but this still cant touch the iphone". The IPhone really took the touch screen to the next level like it or not. They made it so mainstream that now everyone has one. The Iphone is like no other. Why someone wouldnt like it I dont know. I mean it doesnt freeze, the multitouch is just outstanding, and tons of cool apps. Albeit mine is jailbroken, that makes it even more flexible. Just my opinion though. tongue.gif

I guess it depends on how you determine if it is a flop or not.

The Zune is a solid piece of hardware that exceeds an Ipod in so many ways, if that makes it a flop, then so be it.



I agree, the zune, while does have its issues, mainly with the DRM, the zune is an excellent mp3 player. The big advantage Id give it over the Ipod is the fact that it has an FM tuner. The HDD space is also a big plus. End of the day, Ipod or zune you really cant go wrong.

heh, my boss has the iphone and after playing with my 6800 he said he made the wrong choice

in fact everyone i know with the iphone (4 or 5 people) arent satisfied and all but one likes my phone better, lol

if you like the iphone thats great, but everyone i know bought it because its "cool" and found that the hype far outweighs the functionality

Well, I for one will be looking forward to it.

Probably because I objectively look at things like a normal person, and not some fanatic. I love how, even though the iPhone was not the first touch screen phone, every touch screen after it is "copying".

The Zune is not a "flop". I own both an iPod and a Zune, the Zune beats my ipod hands down. It sounds MUCH better, the interface is better (this is subjective, others may disagree), the menus are easier to navigate and its way more responsive. I keep my ipod in my desk at work where i rarely use it, while I keep my Zune with me all the time.

Competition is good. If MS comes out with a good phone, I will try it out for sure. Both people I know who own iPhones like them, but do have issues. The iPhone does freeze. As much as you say it doesn't, they both rarely get 4 or 5 days without some sort of lockup. Most people who own one, or know someone who owns one, know this is true.

Anyway, Microsoft has been in the phone game for a while, and know what they are doing. I would imagine the Zune Phone will be a quality piece of hardware. If it has a full keyboard ala the G1, with a touchscreen as well, that will be awesome. I will be anxiously awaiting the zPhone.

what functionality? like i said, you are the 1st person who says they dont care for the iphone. im 30 work for a sales team, and cell phones are everywhere. most either have iphones or are debating when to get one. Well end of the day, everyone has own opinion. 2 each his own. tongue.gif
